The staff were very unfriendly for one. There was no mention at check-in of any services/facilities or city advice including giving us a map. Especially rude Hostel Manager! The 8 bed mix dorm room is filled to capacity. I was surprised that they were able to legitimately have the four bunks in the middle so close.There is a perspex sheet... More

The hostel was very nice. The rooms were decently sized and had boxes that you could keep your stuff locked in underneath the bunks. The staff were very friendly. There was a lounge area where you could hang out during the day and drink in the evening. It wasn't hard to find and was very close to the main shopping... More

We booked the private en-suite room, which was very clean and of a very good standard for hostel accommodation. The breakfast was good and stocks were replenished often. The bar was very good and the prices were reasonable especially when there was an offer on! The free walking tour comes highly recommended. Staff were pleasant, friendly and cooperative.

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private twin room on the 6th floor. I was hoping we could just push the beds together but it was impossible given the width of the room. The hotel is very clean, beds are comfy and shower is small but hot. (Ours went from hot to boiling which was unavoidable so be careful.)... More

It was the best hostel I have ever been to. Very good location, good equipped, delicious breakfast, nice stuff and cheap in comparison to other hostels. Just a small thing we had to pay for hair dryer, when we wanted to borrow it (we paid once and kept it for two days).

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights with my girlfriend. We were very pleased about the location and the overall cleanliness of the hostel. We had a Private Twin Ensuite, and it was located on the 6th floor. The hostel has a bar on the 1st floor so if you want a good night sleep request a room from... More

I stayed here for two night. The first night I had problems with the Internet (which seems to be on going after reading other comments) and the radiator. The room was freezing, after mentioning it to staff they fixed it the next day. The hostel is in a good location, but be prepared to pay a lot for little in... More

Dear Nathan C and major contributor to tripadvisor. I was happy reading your review. We do make mistakes and you have to agree with me that it has to be expensive in Copenhagen considering the overflow of water and uncomfortable pillows we offer. I was not happy reading about the staff. They are used to see a lot of guests... More

I booked a room all to myself for 3 nights. Upon arrival, the staffs have been very friendly, helpful and nice. The room was very spacious, clean, bright, and has sufficient electrical plugs. There were about 4-5 plugs in the room, so you don't have to worry about taking turns to charge your camera, phone, ipod, etc. The location is... More

The location is excellent, very close to Nyhavn and the commercial streets of Copenhagen. I stayed here in January - in a quiet room at the 6th floor. The room was clean but I think they have some problems with the heating - the radiator was only half warm and very noisy!!! And the internet connection was very very bad... More
